Hometown Families:

Our staff would like to wish all of the Hometown families a wonderful spring break. Take some time to celebrate one another, rest, and enjoy the weather. Spring break runs from March 20th thru March 27th. Classes will resume on March 28th.

Just a reminder when dropping off students in the morning, the front of the building is for drop off only. You may not park in the front of the building to drop off your student. If you would like to walk your child to the door, please park on the side streets. I will be asking cars to be moved starting when we return from spring break.

Students will be able to wear green on March 17th to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

Hometown Spring Concert
